When winter sowing goes bad
My grandfather died about 15 years ago. He used to grow giant pumpkins. When my grandmother died 1.5 years ago, while cleaning out the house, I found a yogurt container full of grandpas giant pumpkin seeds. I've tried to sow these seeds last summer, but the birds or squirrels kept getting into the containers. So I attempted to use the winter sowing method this year - protect the seeds in a sealed container. However, the squirrels still found a way to get at those seeds!
While they were at it, they decided to attach my garlic chives containers. Note the miniblind tag, the dumped out potting mix and the top of the container in the yard. I still haven't found the bottom of the container.
